Hi Nick & Dave,
A request that I didn't manage to get into the questionaire recently.
When developing custom nodes, it is much harder than it should be to work with the admin front-end code (the html file).
This is because it uses
<script type="text/x-red" ... sections to hold the actual html and this doesn't play nicely with code editors and IDE's.
I actually think that it would be much easier to develop if that file could be split into its 3 component parts - perhaps with a naming convention so that Node-RED can assemble things as expected.
This would need to be optional of course since otherwise lots of things would break so both methods would need to be supported. However, it really would make things a lot easier.
I guess one way of achieving this would be to allow the script tags to use
src= to allow the code to be loaded from another file. That would actually work well since it would hopefully require minimal changes to Node-RED itself.
